Former Pakistani cricketer and Karachi Kings president Wasim Akram started trending on Twitter Thursday after a video of the bowling legend seemingly coming hard on Kings skipper Babar Azam during last night’s match went viral. Watch Video on below link
The video from Wednesday’s Karachi vs Multan Sultans match showed Wasim “scolding” Babar at the boundary line towards the end of the match when pressure increased on the team as they failed to defend the target. The video garnered massive response, mainly support for Babar, and criticism for Wasim over “poor” selection of players for the franchise, on social media. Despite the terrible campaign by Kings throughout PSL 2022, Pakistani cricket fans weren’t happy with their beloved captain being “treated badly” when the Kings performance didn’t depend on him alone.
Later Wasim Akram gives clarification over Babar Azam ‘scolding’ scene
Amid speculations and commentary about where former Pakistan Super League (PSL) champions Karachi Kings’ went wrong in this year’s campaign, a video of the franchise president and former Pakistan bowler Wasim Akram apparently “scolding” Babar Azam during last night’s match went viral on social media. The viral video showed Wasim seemingly getting harsh with the Kings skipper at the boundary line during the Karachi vs Multan Sultans match as pressure on the team increased when they failed to defend the target. However, Wasim Akram gave a clarification over the conversation between him and Babar, saying that it was “just a discussion about [Kings’] bowlers”.
“I asked Babar if our bowlers weren’t able to deliver yorkers at all,” Wasim said. He said that the two didn’t talk about anything except for the bowlers because they should have defended the target.
